This past March legendary Belizean fly fishing guide Lincoln Westby and the team at Blue Horizon Belize hosted a grand re-opening of the Blue Horizon Lodge. The small fishing lodge located on an island in Southern Belize offers some of the best flats fishing specifically permit fly fishing in the world.
The lodge hosted its first group of anglers and then the COVID travel restrictions hit and the lodge won’t reopen until at least July as the borders in Belize are not opening until July 1st according to the Belizean Government. For more information on the new lodge check it out online here.
Team Flylords had the chance to fish with Lincoln this past year at Thatch Caye Resort a nearby resort and he was so excited to get his lodge rebuilt. Hopefully, travel restrictions will allow anglers to visit the new lodge as currently, Belize has no active cases of COVID.
According to Blue Horizon Belize, they are offering a flexible cancellation policy for all bookings. “Cancelations due to the Covid19 virus, i.e. airport closures, travel prohibitions, mandatory quarantines during travel dates, and qualifying health concerns, will be able to cancel 14 days prior to the start of the reservation. 100% of the payment value, will be transferred to a rescheduled date within one calendar year. 95% of the payment value will be available as a refund. This special COVID 19 policy is valid for all NEW reservations through November 30, 2020.” More information is online here.
